BOISE, Idaho (AP) — The Idaho Department of Labor has received $2.4 million in federal money to help southwestern Idaho job seekers.

The agency says the money is for paid re-employment assistance, training or other benefits.

The agency announced Thursday that it's holding one-hour information meetings on Friday at seven of its offices in the region.

Those who attend can find out if they qualify for the program.

The money from the Workforce Investment Act is intended to help the long-term unemployed, veterans and eligible spouses, displaced workers and low-income adults.

The money is especially intended to help those 50 and older, and young people ages 16 to 21.
